BHOO, What Are You Worried About?

Filed under: Scams,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 1:22 pm

Since I said I’m not going to go heavy on the presidential sweepstakes, I’ll just link to this Chicago Trib op-ed by John Kass (free e-mail registration required; it’s worth it just for Kass’s column) about Barack Hussein “Obambi” Obama (nickname noted by Kass). I think I’ll just take to calling Obama “BHOO” for short.

It has to do with BHOO, Chicago Mayor Dictator for Life Daley, Patrick Fitzgerald (yeah, THAT one), the “Outfit,” and massive bipartisan scandals and graft. Kass says that “There is no state in the U.S. as politically corrupt as Illinois.” Therefore, what Kass writes of, and especially BHOO’s handling of it, bears close scrutiny. Hint: Kass wonders if BHOO’s official last name might need to be changed to O’Bama.


UPDATE: My, the Chicago papers are busy with BHOO stories. Here’s one from the Sun-Times about the son of a big contributor getting an internship at the request of BHOO’s indicted dealmaker, longtime acquaintance, and next-door neighbor.

UPDATE 2, 5:40 PM: Memeo is covering the blogging on the Sun-Times story.



  1. They are actually looking into Odumbo?

    Maybe Hillary! is getting nervous.

  2. Kass says that “There is no state in the U.S. as politically corrupt as Illinois.”

    He may know what he is speaking of but I’m sure New Jersey’s feeling are hurt by his assertion. :-)

  3. #2, Yeah, I’d think the Garden Staters might take that personally.
